234w ago - Today we have for you a video that shows off the work of Cyberskunk in a PS3 Retail to Debug WIP Project dubbed Codename: Rebug!

He has been working on turning a retail console into a debug console through the use of firmware loader. The reason we are sharing this now is to show that it is nearly complete.

Most of this work has been done for quite some time just not shared with the public, but seeing its nearly complete you will get a preview of things to come. Once we have our full debug dumps you can expect 100% debug features on a retail console (currently we only have partial dumps).

I have left a few things out in the video that I will take screenshots of like *check although we have it enabled its grayed out, also auto download is now gone just like a TEST unit.

We will keep you posted as we make more progress in the coming days. Please do not ask when we will release this because we ourselves don't know when it will be finished.

System In The Video:

  • US - PS3 Slim 120Gb
  • Teensy ++ 2.0
  • 1Gb USB Stick (Rebug)

An apology:
Cyberskunk: I'm really sorry.. I have so many PUP that I have been playing with I got it mixed up again.. I will triple check before I put the proper one up..

I am glad you got it back and running again without reformatting.. I knew it wasn't permanent.. I know exactly which PUP it is now by what happened.. It had small change in the COREOS in it..

And a couple fixes, you could also try reflashing current FW in recovery mode.
rbf351: When it machine gets stuck in the update loop, pull the hard drive out when the update starts again. it will then give you a counter starting at 60 telling you to reset the machine, DO NOT RESET the machine, let the counter run out. the machine with then either reboot or tell you to restart the machine.

while the hard drive is out let the machine boot back up. it will give you a message to press the PS button to re-start the update process again or press start and select with the controller plugged in and the USB drive attached with the update

plug in your USB drive, and press start and select. as soon as you press those buttons push the drive back into place, and the machine will install the firmware you have on your usb drive.

this worked on my slim machine

jsjar: you need to use a downgrader to reinstall your original FW all files should be fine if your using a fat ps3

I woudn't dare until the tools work properly. If any core file is modified and not signed properly it may result in an instant brick.

First we have to be able to sign simple applications and run without JB, then when we are sure it works without problems we might be able to risk our consoles modifying core os files.

We just need to be patient and not write everything that comes to our minds.

Can someone explain what's the difference between retail firmware and debug fw?

Thanks
